NESCO, a company well-known for their quality dehydrators, brings us one of the best recipes from this cuisine – the Southwestern pasta. We hear more and more about this meal, as it became very popular among gourmets lately, so let’s check it out!
- Italian salami
- Mild-green chili
To make this pasta look and taste as best as possible, you will need a proper dressing for it. There are loads of different dressings that you can apply here, and one of the best is surely the Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette, which tastes amazing. The only problem here is that the pasta salads (especially the Southwestern ones) suck up the flavors of their dressings, and this just might happen to you if you added too much chili.
If you create a dressing that is as spicy as the pasta that we just made, the combination of those two will bring a real party inside your mouth!
Another great idea is to sprinkle the pasta with cheese – whether it’s the cheddar or the grated pepper jack. Of course, the best taste here is achieved with one of those well-known Mexican cheeses – like queso fresco or cotija, for example. You shouldn’t have problems in finding any of them at your local grocery store.
The best dehydrator for this recipe
NESCO’s American Harvest FD-61WHC is the way to go when it comes to Southwestern pasta, as it is a simple kitchen appliance that works very well and is easy to use. Even though it fits into any kitchen, the American Harvest is still quite a powerful dehydrator, having a top-mounted fan that removes the need to rotate the trays – it dries all the slices evenly. These racks are robust and well-made, and the best thing about them is that they’re dishwasher-free, so we don’t have to tell you that washing them is a real breeze.
The other great things about American Harvest FD-61WHC are the 1-year warranty, the included recipe guide, as well as the special rack for the fruit dehydration and a jerky gun. As you might already know, the jerky gun can help you make jerky with beef, letting you create perfect pieces of it that will get dried in no time inside this dehydrator.
